Keynotes and Public Speaking

I am a frequent speaker on the topics of digitization, Fintech and the particular technology themes impacting financial services players. For examples, please see the research described here. Below, you can also see a selection of shorter videos and longer podcasts providing a flavor of my work. A longer list of recent conferences is also provided. 

If you are interested in having me speak at your event, to the Board, Executive or Strategy team of your company, or at an academic institution, please do not hesitate to reach out here.

In terms of pricing, this fully depends on the circumstances and audience. As a general rule, I would charge $1,000 per hour for local speaking and travel, or a travel / hospitality fee plus a day rate of $15,000 for international events. There are many circumstances where speaking is about building community and helping entrepreneurs, and not about commercial terms. In such cases, it is a privilege for me to contribute freely and give back to a growing community.
